TMZ has confirmed that cocaine was in fact found in Whitney Houston‘s hotel room when investigators arrived to inquire about her sudden death. The site says official documents show one of the items Beverly Hills police recovered was “white, powdery remnants.” The powder was subsequently tested and found to be cocaine.
In related news, Raffles van Exel has refuted a Dutch newspaper report that claims he told them that he cleared Whitney Houston’s hotel room before investigators arrived. The (alleged) random (or not so) homeboy of Houston told the National Enquirer (which I imagine, Nippy would not so happy to hear he spoke to) told the tabloid, ”That’s ridiculous. I did get a call from a station (in Holland) a couple of days after Whitney died and spoke about her death in generalities. But of course I didn’t say that.”
